is theres any chance that te book "the kind diet" be traduced to spanish! it will be easier! i have 17, and yesterday i was decided to be healthyer (well when i read that eathing well clears your acne i was like -im in!!-) and i found Alicia's book, and i am so exited to bough it!. is so great that your family suports you. yesterday a told my mom about the book, and today she did this delicius food, everithing made whit fresh ingredents, alot of vegies,and fish (im not vegetarian i just leaving meet), its cool that your family suport you.
it's being translated into chinese so im sure spanish will be next!it for sure clears your acne! that was one of my main reasons for switching from just vegetarian to vegan, im also not eating anything with sugar and that helped clear my skin so much.for my project on dairy i told everyone how theres blood and pus in milk (along with how it makes you fat gives you bad skin and can even lead to cancer), i think everyone was VERY grossed out. i hope it made an impact.
i just wanted to let all kind lifers of any age who have acne problems know that if you follow this book it WILL make your skin clear! ive seen such an improvement in my skin since i started this lifestyle change and i want you all to know there's hope!
Follow the hot body scrub instructions and do it every day and you will see such a difference in your skin all over. i like to add some salt and vitamin E oil into the hot water and it feels so nice! the body scrub has also made my body breakouts (gross "bacne") a thing of the past which i am so happy about. its something that is so simple but it has amazing results.
Hey! I'm 16 and vegetarian!! phasing in veganism very slowly whilst still living in a house full of meat eaters. Its so great to see that there are other teenagers out there like me who are having the same issues
Hey there fellow kindlifers. I'm new to these forums, but i'm an 18 year old girl from Canada, and am looking for some vegan support as I don't have any vegan friends (*tear)! I have a concern: Being a semi-vegan but always vegetarian for many years, I am committing to a vegan lifestyle once again, and hopefully i'll be able to last this time! I've never had a problem cutting meat out. I don't miss it whatsoever, nor do i miss milk. My problem is cheese and chocolate. I can't seem to cut it out. I don't want to use cheese substitutes, i just want to kick the bloody addiction!
So i'm looking for support in this beautiful forum- is anyone else struggling to kick these two deadly foods? Or has anyone kicked them and would like to share some words of motivation and common sense about why they are bad for you?
When I first approached the vegan lifestyle (last February), cheese had become a daily staple in my diet. I went cold turkey (pardon the non-vegan expression) from omnivore to vegan, and throughout the first few weeks I slipped up a lot with cheese. As my body was getting slowly cleansed from all the other animal products, I started to naturally lean away from cheese, as it felt heavy and clogging. I still slip sometimes, but not nearly as much. The first couple weeks are the hardest, and if you get past them, you're pretty much in the home stretch. If you do make a mistake, just relax and realize it was a mistake, then move on and make some peanut butter cups, or perhaps a batch of cupcakes :) Good luck on your journey to vegan bliss. - Alex
P.S. I haven't had much trouble with chocolate, but look in the chocolate isle in your local health food store and you might be pleasently surprised. Also, I don't know what city in Canada you live in, but I live in Vancouver and there's this AWESOME vegan shop in New west called 'Karmavore'. They have vegan chocolates there, and I bet if you search you could probably find some in you area.
